Description

Fungal Endophytes were cultured from the root bark of Sassafras albidum. The endophytes were cultivated for their metabolites. These metabolic products were isolated and analyzed for medicinal compounds. The extracted metabolites were tested against both gram (-) and gram (+) bacteria. Inhibition against E. coli, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus, and V. parahaemolyticus was observed. The samples were also analyzed using liquid chromatography – mass spectrometry (LC-MS) to look for additional compounds of pharmacological interest.
